(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

'Why Me? '

If I could promote happiness...
I'd ask all sadness to flee.
Nothing but joy for everyone,
I would choose for friends
My neighbors and of course,
My family.

And I would do those things correct.
Not neglecting to respect.
Every chance that I would get.
Doing a good deed daily I would do.
If I knew that would bring a smile or two...
On a few disappointed faces today.

If I had my way,
I would hear no one say...
In dismay,
'Why me? '
